Yes, purchased a set of wheels from "Wheel Vintiques". The owner and I spent
quite some time on the phone about what I needed and wanted for offset and
bolt pattern. Since I have a Volare' clip Vintiques decided to use old
International centers on the front and stock 5" bolt pattern on the rear. He
found that stock Ford hubcaps snap into the International center. What turns
out great is the offset is the same on both wheels but looks less on the
International wheel, which is the look I was after. I was very pleased with
the service and the product of Wheel Vintiques. I do think they need help
with the employees that answer FAXes and phones, just ask for the owner.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Cab for a 57

Well, I've resigned myself to the fact that the only way I'm going to
get this restoration done properly is to replace my cab with one
that won't require so much re-construction. As a result, I've been
searching the web for one and came oh-so-close to getting one for
a song, but the guy already sold it.

If anyone has or knows someone who has a '57, '58, '59 or '60 cab
that has no major rust damage, I would be very interested in it for
my project. It's the only thing that's a real stumbling block for me
right now, so any leads would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I once had a 56 COE and it seemed that the rad was a little different from
those of pickups, however when I looked up the part numbers, I found the same
numbers for the COEs and the bigger F siries trucks, so fron that I would
think any 53, 54, 55, or 56 COE, or larger F series truck would be the same,
with the exception of the 53 Rad for the flat head engine. I looked up the
part numbers for the 56 radiator and the numbers are as follows the the C and
F series 500 to 700 the number is B9TT 8005 H, for the F and C series 750 to
900 B7Q 8005 A . By the way the book showed the same numbers for 54 and 55
and the B7Q 8005 A number for the 53 with 279 and 317 (Lincoln engines). The
core support number is THAB 16138 A for all 53 to 56 COE models. I think I
still have a radiator that came from the COE I once had, if you want it just
e-mail me and let me know.
